morgans, specter energy looks like a good play. we're looking at the 4% to 5% yielders, companies that have a good track record of increasing those yields. we're sticking more with consumer staples. we're definitely tilted towards that defensive end. but we're going to stay there. as long as growth is slow, that's where we feel we can get the best risk adjusted returns for our clients. >> all right. thanks for joining us. mark, good to see you. rick, have a good weekend. gordon, have a good time at the beacon tonight. we're less than an hour from the trade month. kayla rounds up november's big winners and losers. >> hey, bill. the indices may have danced along the flat line for the entire month, but there were clear winners and losers on either side of the tape. to the downside, several companies falling markedly. exelon down 17%. cliff's natural down 21%. pitney bowes down 22%. the biggest laggard is the born-again retailer jcpenney. down 26.5%. some stocks arguably had a better month. computer sciences up around 25%. trip adviser, spun off of expedia, running 27% in november alo

of their competitive energy into this third platform may become obsolete. >> oh, yeah, there's no question. because if you think about what's happening and the cloud is probably a good example. amazon is coming in right now with amazon web services and they are going in to the markets of companies like hp and ibm and microsoft, sap oracle, 60% to 80% margins and they are coming in with a 20% margin saying we're going to come in and use cloud technology, bring prices down for customers, reach much larger volumes and really almost break the business model of these traditional players. >> who are the cutting edge companies? you mentioned oracle certainly but who are some of the cutting edge companies that you see out there right now who really have a leg up in expenditures on a high-percentage basis to the third platform? >> well, there's no question. i talked about ibm and hp and those guys as if they're just the old school. these companies are also watching major efforts to be third platform leaders. so certainly you have to include them. microsoft is investing an enormous amount to build their clou

states. the u.s. government suspension is over the energy giant's role in the 2010 deepwater horizon oil spill. you can see bp shares this morning still adding almost 0.2%. but underperforming the market. for more, we're joined by kneel atkins atkinson. this move seems pretty extraordinary. in your view, is it unusual for the u.s. government to respond this this aggressively in this case or do they have a basis for doing so? >> i think the u.s. government will never pass up an opportunity to basically kick bp when it can because bp has become the boogeyman of the last 2 1/2 years. ever since the original explosion, i think we've all been expecting that bp would find itself in great difficulty when it came to getting further exploration contracts in the gulf of mexico and indeed elsewhere in the u.s. >> it certainly wouldn't be surprising that they have a hard time getting the contracts even if they had come out the week or the month that this happened and said you're now sus pinneded until we sort this all out. what strikes me strange is the timing. we're two plus years after this event.
